LEIPZIG, Germany -- ipoque, the leading European provider of DPI solutions for Internet traffic management and analysis, introduces the two new high-performance systems PRX-5G and PRX-1G. PRX-5G supports three Gigabit Ethernet links or one 10-Gigabit Ethernet link at a maximum throughput of 6 Gbit/s in a 2U system. The smaller 1U PRX-1G supports three Gigabit Ethernet links and a throughput of 3.4 Gbit/s. With their support for three network links, the new systems also enable the effective management of asymmetric network traffic.

Along with these models, a firmware update with many new features has been released. These include VLAN-based bandwidth management and detection support for popular tunnel and gaming protocols. The new tunnel protocol module enables management of network traffic inside tunnels that use for instance SSL, OpenVPN, IPsec or TOR. The gaming module supports popular online games such as Half-Life 2, Steam, World of Warcraft and Microsoft's Xbox.

Improving the performance while at the same time significantly extending the protocol support is made possible by parallelization of the internal packet processing. PRX-5G and PRX-1G use seven respectively three packet processing cores. PRX-5G is able to handle three fully loaded Gigabit Ethernet links or up to six gigabit per second on a 10-Gigabit Ethernet link – being the DPI market’s first system to offer this performance in a rack space-saving 2U chassis.
